Sims 3 1.55 Patch doesnt work with CC!

Post by Swan on Sat 29 Jun 2013, 03:33

Okay eversince I updated my sims 3 to the new 1.55 patch my launcher wont load at all.. I literally have to open Task Manager and close it, it will only open if i take my cc out and i reinstall my cc and load the game fine but as soon as i close it i have to take the cc out and have to reinstall them again, I dont have any serious mods only the "no intro" but thats pretty much it most of the cc is from this site and i contacted EA support they told me there should be a fix coming out soon but I wanna know if anyone else is expierencing this annoying issue, I really wanna play Island Paradise but I dont wanna sacrifice all my cc to do so, also I tried reinstalling all my sims games didnt change a thing, also restarted my computer and everything so if anyone has any other ideas please let me know!!!! I'm dying to play sims specially with the new expansion!!!!!!

Hello,

Well, my launcher doesn't work either. But this is not a big catastrophe, since I can start my game directly by double-clicking on the TS3W.exe (in the base game location C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Smile  Of course, you should try that too. There is no need to "take out CC".

And if I want to install ".sims3pack" files, then I normally use "CC Magic" (google for that), since I can't open the launcher.

Good luck !

P.S. Contacting EA for support is a waste of time and effort. Wink

Hello again,

Re-start your computer. After that, lower the resolution of your computer screen (I changed mine to 1024 x 768). Then try starting the game again by double-clicking on the TS3W.exe.

By the way: installing your custom content with "CC Magic" won't help you much if you can't start the game. Crying or Very sad

Do you use CC Magic? It could prove useful...

Hello,

You mean it's not showing up in-game or in CC Magic panel? If it's not showing up in-game, I suggest you redownload and reinstall the worlds.

Have you tried renaming the sims folder in documents and restarting the launcher?

Seems a basic thing to try but from what I read above I didn't see that being done apart from reinstalling etc which I believe would had left that folder intact ( could be wrong )

Hello,

Have you updated your store fix to the latest version (updated on 7/7)? The old store fix may cause this lifeguard glitch (since I have tested the store fix before).
